In 2017, we sent over 300 books to detainees! For many, the simple gift of receiving a book is enough to lift one’s spirit. All of a sudden, they have something that was sent just for them. They have a belonging that was given, not taken, and they can finally escape the walls of the detention center for a while as they imagine a life beyond. For many, it’s a welcomed distraction.
Will you help the work continue in 2018? Donate now and your money will ensure that books continue to change the narrative of people detained at Stewart Detention Center.

NOTE: Stewart Detention Center will not accept books that have been sent from individuals. Thus, we must raise money so that we can purchase the books and have them shipped directly from the publisher.
